Raftsman's Journal,
The Democratic papers are greatly en
raged at the Wea of electing negroes to office ;
and yet, in many heavy Republican districts,
they are ready to vote for any colored man
who consents to run against his party !
The Chicago Times, lemocratic, coolly
claims that the fifteenth amendment ha
added one million of votes to the Democratic
party. Perhaps the Times meant to say
that that amendment bad obliterated that
many Democratic suffrages.
The World gives the "revenue reformers"
professing Republicanism, notice that "they
must choose between surrendering their new
connections and sundering their old party
ties." So face the music, gentlemen, and
prepare to inarch. The World says the
arms of the Democracy are ready to receive
you, and it invites you to come.
Free trade writers have been misrepresen
ting facts by putting the value of American
iron and 6teel and the manufactures thereo
at $119,950,000; whereas the true value, as
carefully calculated by the American Iron
and Steel Association, is $750000,000 a
year, more than six times the amount con
ceded by the free traders.
Now here (says the Cincinnati Timet)
is more persecution of Democrats. Some
nine hundred of them, confined in the Illinois
peuitentiary. have been deprived of their
daily mental pabulum, the Warden having
prohibited the circulation of the Chicago
Tiutex in thartbstitution on the ground that
it is an indecent and immoral publication,
and calculated to corrupt, the morals of
prisoners. It is considered a very good pa
per for Chicago, but it won't do for the
It is authoritatively charged in the Phila
delphia Prets that certain Democratic Con
gressmen, representing the strongest iron
and manufacturing districts of Pennsylvania,
have been in the habit, during the discussion
on the tariff bill, of voting with the free
traders when the vote, taken viea voce, is
not recorded, and with the protectionists
when the yeas and nays are called and recor
ded. This belongs to the lowest stratum
of political meanness, and the deceptious
gentlemen should be ferreted out and ven
tilated. There is a singular newspaper at Manas
sas, Va. The tone of the whole paper, with
the exception of one columu, is ultra South
ern Democratic.- The one column supports
Grant and his Administration. In conse
quence of the confusion created by this mix
ture of politics, the editor has been obliged
to announce "that the arrangement by which
the 'Republican column' is inserted in this
paper was made without his consent," and
adds emphatically "that he is Southern,
born and in lull sympathy with the people
of bis native soil."
And now comes the report that the Hon.
John Morrissey, memher of Congress from
New York, threatens to resign because he is
unacquainted with the duties of the position.
Mr. Morrissey has certaiuly not distinguish
ed himself as a legislator, nor even champi
oned the cause of Democracy as valiantly as
was justly expected of so doughty a warrior;
but he could not more fittingly represent the
class of Democrats who elected him than by
remaining at home and attending t his faro
business, as he is said to do. It would be
well if ignorance were always voiceless in
our governmental affairs. It is doubtful if
another man could be found in the party who
would do lesa talking and voting against the
interests of the eountry, and we hoie, there
fore, that Mr. Morrissey may be persuaded
not to resign.
Now when the Democracy are in convul
sions over the proclamation of the Constitu
tional Amendment which confers on some
900,000 Nativ Americans the rights of A
merican citizens,!and thereby does such sig
nal injustice and outrage to about the same
number of Irishmen ; and when these much
wronged Irishmen are clamoring for a re
duction of taxation to relieve them from the
burdens which others bear just now, when
we are gravely informed that the payment
of our Debt is a fantastical dream and an
"abolition" impossibility comes the bil
lious and remorseless Boutwell to say that
"the reduction of the National debt has de
creased during April, 1870, $11,697,793 39!"
What cursed particularity ! Even to the 39
tynts ! Verily, the troubles of the Democra
cy increase apace, and the necessity for a
'.'white man's" party is becoming pressing.
Senator SauLbury, of Delaware, is in a
bad way. Stewart, of Nevada, has introduc
ed a bill to enforce the provisions of the Fif
teenth amendment It is so framed as to
take in the State of Delaware, and to allow
the negroes to vote there a prospect not at
all p leaking to Saulsbury. To drown his
grief, the Senator has taken to the flowing
bowl, and he is beginning to repeat his old
exhibitions on the floor of the Senate Cham
ber. The other day he met Senator Stew
art, and informed him that if the bill passed
he would challenge him to mortal combat
"Do itV said Stewart; "but remember,
Saulsbury, the eyes of all Delaware will be
on you, and you most kill me, or else you
will never come back to the Senate!"
"Well," said Saulsbury, reflecting, "if that
bill passes, I guess I won't oom back, any
how which guess may be nearer the truth
than he iu?agV?C( when he made it.
Match-Stick Factory.
Within the past week, mention has fre
quently been made in reference to the loca
ting of a match-stick factory at Clearfield, by
the Snow Shoe Company-their establish
ment at that place having recently been de
stroyed by fire. How much truth there is
in the romor. we are unable to gay not
bavin, any definite information on the sub
ject But, te that s it may, why should
iiot such a manufactory be located here?
We have plenty of timber, of the best qual
ity, for that purpose. Then, all that is re
quired is the requisite capital and enter
To give some idea of the vastness of the
match business, in this country and in Eu
rope, it is only necessary to give a few facts.
It is estimated that Europe daily consumes
two thousand? millions (2,000,000,000) of
matches, and to manufacture these at least
four hundred thousand (400,000) cubic yards
of timber is required, giving employment
to five hundred thousand (500,000) work
men, and produces goods valued at fifty mil
lions (50,000,000) of dollars. In this eoun
tiy, in Western New York, is located a
match factory which uses annually seven
hundred and twenty thousand (720,000) cu
bic feet of white pine, and four hundred
thousand (400,000) feet of basswood for ca
ses, besides a vast amount of other material.
These statistics furnish conclusive evi
dence of the extent of the match business,
and will serve to illustrate the importance
of the locating of a match-stick factory in
our midt In fact, the general benefit to
be derived from the erection of such estab
lishment here can scarcely be estimated. It
would create a home market for a vast a
mount of lumber. It would give employ
ment to a large number of persons ; and
hence, as a result, would stimulate all oth
er branches of business to increased activity
and prosperity. Merchants, mechanics, ar
tizans, laborers, farmers, everybody, would
be benefitted thereby. We commend this
subject to our citizens, and hope that an ef
fort will be made to induce the erection of
a match-stick manufactory here.
The Sew York Legislature.
There appears to be among the people and
press of New York a pretty universal senti
ment that the Legislature of that State
which very recently adjourned and disband
ed, was, in no respect, any better than it
ought to have been, and in most respects
much wore. The Sun expresses the pre
vailing opinion in the following paragraph :
"After a trial of four months, what is the
verdict of every well informed and unbiased
citizen of this State? Undoubtedly it is, that
the Legislature which has just retired from
the Capitol is the most corrupt and infa
mous body that ever defiled its halls. So
audacious, brazen and shameless has it shown
itself to be, that it has made itself ridicu
lous by affecting to hold up to scorn those
who have had the courage to expose and de
nounce its manifold rascalities, while, when
hard pressed by explicit charges of corrupt
tion, it has gone through the mockery of
selecting some of its tainted members to si
in judgment upon its own delinquencies."
This it should be remembered is the Leg
islature for which Governor Hoffman became
a responsible guarantor last November, when,
in a congratulatory speech, he assured his
political friends that their long-cherished
hopes of reform should not be disappointed,
snd especially that, whatever else might hap
pen, the Legislature of J 870 would prove to
be an honest one.
Finally Settled.
The decision of the Philadelphia Court
of Quarter Sessions, last week, in the Dis
trict Attorney cae, Furman Sheppard r.
Charles Gibbons, is, we presume, a final de
termination of the question. The following
is the decision and decree which ousts Mr.
Gibbons and restores Mr. Sheppard :
"It therefore becomes our duty, and we
do hereby declare and decree that, at the
general election, held on the second Tues
day of October. 1S63, Furman Sheppard,
having received the highest number of
votes, was duly and legally elected to the-of-fice
of District Attorney for the city of Phil
adelphia. And we do further order, that
the decree of the 16th of October, 1869, of
this Court, wherein it is stated that Charles
Gibbons was elected District Attorney, he
set aside and annulled, and that the decree
now made, declaring the election of Furman
Sheppard to the office of District Attorney,
shall be substituted, and stand for the de
cree, which is hereby set aside and annull
ed." Immediately after the delivery of this de
cision. Judge Allison administered the oath
of office to Mr. Sheppard. The contest has
been a "nip-and-tuck" affair from beginning
to ending, and we presume the parties them
selves are glad to have it terminated. The
opinion appears to have been unanimous,
and therefore, whatever way be thought to
the contrary by many, we presume the de
cision will be quietly and generally acquiesc
ed in.
Another Hollidat. Mr. Schenck in
troduced in the House, on Monday, May 2,
a joint resolution, which was passed with
out division, declaring the 30th of May, be
ing the day appointed and accustomed to be
used for the decoration of the graves of sol
diers who died in the war in defense of the
Union against rebellion, a public holliday to
be forever observed aa such by the people of
the United States.
Improved. The Somerset Herald, last
week, appeared in a new dress, and enlarg
ed form. The Whig attachment has been
dropped from the heading it having be
come obsolete. The IleralJ is a good, reli
able paper, and deserves increased support
at the hands of the Republicans of Somer
set county.
Conflicting accounts continue to be re
ceived from the Indian country. Strong
hopes are still entertained that a general
war may be avoided. As yet no open out
break has occurred, and if prompt measures
are taken at once, it is believed at the In
dian Bureau, that there will be none.
The General Committee of the Grand
Army of the Republic has ordered that the
30th inst. be observed throughout the coun
try as "Decoration Day," on which day the
posts of the order throughout the country
will attend to the decoration of the graves
of the nation's dead, in national and other
A Just Tribute. The Harrisburg Tel
egraph of the 2d says :
State Treasurer, Hon. R. W. Mackey,
to-day transferred the Treasury to his suc
cessor, Hon. W. W. Irwin. We doasimpie
duty in recording that, never in the history
of Pennsylvania have her finances been no
ably managed or transferred in a manner so
creditable to the retiring officer. During
Mr. Mackey's term of one year the repre
hensible and illegal system of loaning the
funds of the State to private individuals for
their benefit has been abolished. The
"vault laccount" which consisted of due
bills of these parties amounted one year
ago to $211,000; to-day there is no such ac
count Ihe balance on nana is now 91,-
762,000, against $880,000 one year ago, and
not less than $600,000, in round numbers,
of our State debt has been paid off.
Mr. Mackey's able report on the finances;
bis business-like suggestion; his untiring
and restless energy and activity in the man
agement of his trust ; have not only favora
bly affected the value of our bonds, but have
strengthened the financial condition and
standing of the State. His bold, and at the
time startling, offer to anticipate the pay
ment of a loan not due was found to imme
diate! v enhance the nrice of our loans, until
now every bond issued by our State com
mands a premium the five per cents, even
selling at 103- it will be difficult to surpass
this superb management of our finances ;
and the vear endine May 2. 1870, will fur
nish a severe test and comparison for any
future administration of this important de
partment of our State government
Fair Warning. The audacious pro
position of certain Republicans to disband
the Republican party in the interest 01 Free
Trade, has elicited some plain talk from the
New York Tribune. In the course of an edi
torial, that paper gives the gentlemen the
followine fair warning ;
Again we insist that the Republican party
can be upheld only by respect freely accor-
AA Li? its mpnihpra tn panh others COnvic-
tions. If the Free Traders in that party
want to turn the frotectiousts out 01 u we
bid them set about the job af once, and
linn thpv II have a enmi time : if thev choose
to get out themselves, they have a perfect
right to do so, and we snail not try to stop
them ; but if they choose to stay in the party
and let us stay also, they may wisely as well
as justly concede that wei'rotectionists hold
our opinions by as valid a tenure as they
hold theirs. They may go farther and fare
no better.

Hon. G. W. Scofjkld. The Warren
Ledger, (Democratic,) says :
Mr. Scoficld has written a letter in reply
to one received, to the effect that if his party
desire him to be a candidate for re-election
to Congress, he will not decline. He has
jumped over to the old Southern theoiy of
keeping men iu office learn them the trade
and let them work at it. It is a little strange
that he could adopt anything having a
Southern tincture. The Harrisburg Patri
ot pays Mr. Scofield a compliment in saying
he is the ablest man in either House oi
Congress from this State, We recollect that
the late Abyah Morrison used to say that
he was a better lawyer than there was in
Warren, and then setting bis cane firmly on
the floor to give the words emphasis, would
say, "And that is not saying much." But
really we agree with the Patriot. It is of
but little use to hunt in the Republican
ranks for a better man.

One letter, from Mr. Gladstone, said sub

Canada was gravitating towards this conn,
try so fast that the mother country was fully
reconciled to the idea of cutting loose from
her. If Canada had a mind to ask for inde
pendence through her Parliament, England
would yield a ready assent. The English
government had been gradually cutting off
the supplies from Canada solely with the
view to her annexation to the United States,
and there was now a powerful influence at
work in the Canadian Parliament to urge
on an appeal for self-government, which,
although it meant annexation, the English
government was more than willing to grant

Court, on the refusal of the Company to pay
